Pelosi warns of double dip recession

From Arthur Delaney at Huff Post:

“If we really don’t address this in a very serious way, we could slip back and have another recession, and if we do it’s harder to come back.” Pelosi didn’t offer specifics on what might happen with the jobs bill or its component parts next week but said some within the caucus think extended unemployment benefits ought to be paid for. “One of the debates that goes on now — which I completely resist, but it’s one of the debates going on — is at the end of the day, these people have to have their benefits, and should we begin paying for unemployment benefits?”
